Subject: The Romance of a Spahi
The story is slow and fairly uneventful, its dealing in small things about normal people makes it believable and human. Loti's dreamy descriptions and specific details give it an air of exotica that is pleasurable. One can still read the book today and enjoy it for these positive aspects without being complicit in the racial colonial perspective it occasionally portrays. As partly autobiographical of Loti it's a lens into a life fully lived.
